Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) & CBT Coaching
All of us experience complicated, distressing thoughts and feelings. These thoughts and feelings can be difficult to shift. Sometimes it can feel as if we are putting in a lot of effort but our wheels are just spinning in mud. We are stuck. CBT can help us get unstuck.
Whether it is an everyday issue or a clinical problem, CBT can help us resolve the issues and make us more resilient to the ups and downs of work and personal life.
What is CBT Therapy?
CBT is usually short-term, straight talking and 'user-friendly'. It aims to find strategies to unpick self-defeating patterns of behaviour or thoughts that no longer serve us. CBT can help us function better in our lives now and in the future. It is recommended by the Department of Health and has the largest evidence base of any psychological therapy.
The aim is to give you long-term strategies to resolve problems.

The difference between CBT and counselling or psychotherapy
Unlike some types of therapy, CBT involves a lot more than just 'talking and nodding'. It is a very active therapy and involves trying out different strategies to optimise your mental health. It definitely not about lying on a couch.
Good CBT is supportive and encouraging. More importantly it is also problem focused and offers practical strategies to manage life stresses and clinical issues in a more effective way.
Although CBT recognises that past life experience can shape how we feel, think and behaviour, it is not a type of therapy that spends many hours and weeks dwelling on these events.
The aim is more to find workable management strategies and ways of dealing with difficulties that are happening in the here and now. It is far more about who we can be - deciding who we want to be and building the fulfilling lives that we want.
Choosing a psychologist or therapist can be confusing but need not be intimidating!
Once you know that they have the right credentials (e.g. BPS, BABCP or HPCP) and that they have the right expertise & competence in helping with your type of problem , it largely comes down to level of personal comfort with that person. Choose a psychologist with whom you feel comfortable and at ease. Here are some questions to help find the right one.
